The Course

Make no mistake, this is an extremely hard 100 miles. 

It includes the VMM 100km course which has also been updated to provide more trail and it is therefore more challenging than previous editions. 

The first part of the course which is unique to 100 mile runners is extremely beautiful, but also very tough. 

After a run out of Sapa, you will soon be on the ridge line, which is all trail and includes very little flat. 

After running across the ridge line you will come down from Mount Silverstone (the final peak of the standard VMM) to Topas Ecolodge and Checkpoint 103. 

From here, you will head onto two stunning clockwise loops around nearby valleys, returning each time to the lodge. 

This means you come back to CP103 multiple times.  Here we will set up a great checkpoint, plus you can also store everything you need in your drop bag

As stated above, the 100k course you will then join is also updated, with the most significant changes in the first 30k.

Qualifying for entry

To run VMM 100 miles, you must have previously completed at least one 70km+ ultra mountain marathon* (not a road event) before the race. The race must be an official race, not a virtual race / club run.

On registration, please provide a URL link to your qualifying result (VTS results page, ITRA results page, or similar). If you plan to complete a qualifying race between now and race day, you must send us your result by 30 days prior to the race date.

Failure to provide evidence of a qualifying past performance will result in refusal of entry.

*Please note we will assess your submitted performance for its level of difficulty and the organiser’s decision is final. A GPX track that is not an official race is not sufficient for qualification.
